Pressure Plate Analysis using (Rothbart) Proprioceptive Insoles
Wear Patterns of Shoes - Bracers vs Releasers
When the intensity of stimulation in the proprioceptive insole is correct, Pressure Plate Readings will shift towards homeostasis:
When the intensity of stimulation in the proprioceptive insole is not correct, Pressure Plate Readings will shift away from homeostasis:
Patients with Descending Postural Distortional Patterns (e.g., resulting from cranial or occlusal imbalances, iatrogenic orthodontic or bridge work) may skew the Pressure Plate Readings away from homeostasis, even when the intensity of stimulation to the bottom of the foot is correct.
